Took young grand-children visiting to see the trains. They loved the trains and the tracks and the different scenery obstacles etc that they have to go over / through. Glad they kept this attraction started years ago

A lot on view, incredible detail and what a warm and welcoming host/owner. My husband and son just wandered and stared in a happy daze. A lovely place to visit and a happy home for enthusiasts.

So unassuming from the outside that you are bound to miss it. We stumbled upon it by a very lucky coincidence of parking right on the entrance. This place is just magic. The model trains are captivating and the stories behind some of them are...More
